I installed Mandrake 8.1 and I had the same steps. I picked the resolution, video card, monitor, etc. The screen with penguins is there for testing to see if all the video output devices work. Look over the device information and if that looks o.k. to you, click on o.k. to end the installation. The computer will then eject the CD and reboot.

You need to know all the parts you have in your computer before installing LINUX. The installation will be hard if you don't know what you have.

Be more specific on your problems so that more experience LINUX users can help.
